6th & 8th Grade Social Studies
Minnesota Studies & World Geography
Welcome to my website!!
I am a native of Rice Lake, Wisconsin where I graduated in 1996. I then attended St. Johns University in Collegeville, Minnesota. I graduated from SJU/CSB in 2000 with a major in Social Sciences and minors in Secondary Education, History, and Coaching. As the final piece of my training, I was assigned to South Jr. High and Apollo High School as a student teacher in the fall of 2000. Following the 2000 - 2001 school year, I was hired at South Jr. High and the rest, as they say, is history.
This is my 19th year of teaching in the St. Cloud School District. I am in my first year teaching at Kennedy Community School. Prior to Kennedy, I spent most of my time at South Jr. High & Tech High School.
My 6th grade course will focus on the history, economics, civics, and geography of Minnesota. The 8th grade World Geography course will explore the physical and human geography characteristics of the earth. Both courses have textbooks that will be downloaded onto student ipads for use at home.
In addition to teaching, my career has always included coaching - both at the junior high and high school levels.
I currently coach the following activities at South:
- 8th Grade Football
- 7th Grade Girls Basketball
- 8th Grade Boys Basketball
- 8th Grade Girls Softball
Parents - please email me with any questions or concerns. I will be updating this web page throughout the year when necessary. Let's work together to make 2019 - 20 a great year for your students!!!
